this is how you benefit

  • Synchronization extension: considerable time savings when transferring user data 
  • SSO extension: simplified, secure login 
  • Time savings for administrators: users and permissions are automatically transferred to the DAM software, as are changes 
  • Convenience: no additional login details for users to remember 
  • Secure user authentication thanks to central login via LDAP (4ALLPORTAL DAM stores no user data)
  • Easily link login to the DAM system to an existing directory service (Microsoft Active Directory, Lotus Domino, Novell eDirectory, and other LDAP-based services) 

Do you use a directory service such as Microsoft Active Directory (AD), Lotus Domino, or Novell eDirectory? Would you like to give your digital asset management (DAM) software access to your directory service? If so, the LDAP Authentication Provider 4APP (4ALLPORTAL app) is the right solution. The application enables your DAM system to communicate with the directory service via the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). There are many advantages to this when it comes to user login and synchronization. 

LDAP simplifies login to the DAM system 

The 4ALLPORTAL DAM LDAP integration enhances the user login experience. As the user’s identity stored centrally in the directory service is used for login, your sign-on process is not only faster, but also more secure. 

When logging into the digital asset management software for the first time, a user is automatically created in 4ALLPORTAL. The LDAP-DAM connector is also used here to retrieve the required user data in the directory service. With each subsequent login, the app automatically checks the user and their permissions in the background. Any changes made in the directory service are automatically transferred to the DAM software. 

App extension: Single sign-on (SSO) for digital asset management with Windows Active Directory (AD) 

Do you use the single sign-on (SSO) function in conjunction with your Windows Active Directory (AD)? Would you like to extend this process to your digital asset management system? This is where our SSO app extension comes in. Once the extension is enabled, users logged in to the Windows domain are automatically logged into the DAM system in the background. There is no need to enter a username and password to log into 4ALLPORTAL. Since no password is transmitted, the login process is even more secure. 

App extension: User synchronization for digital asset management via LDAP 

With this extension to the digital asset management LDAP integration, all (or a specific selection) of your users stored in your Microsoft Active Directory (AD) can be transferred along with their information to 4ALLPORTAL and set up as new users there. This is useful when you want to transfer a large number of users to the digital asset management software in one go, for example.

    At the end of the day I was most impressed by the software’s flexible customization options. They really helped me to optimize my workflows.

    In the past, people stored a RAW format on their PC, developed a TIFF or PSD from that, then stored that on the server. But people also sometimes kept the RAW file, made a JPEG out of it, and then stored the RAW, the JPEG and the TIFF. Now there is only one original, which can be downloaded in various formats using download profiles.

    We have already received a great deal of positive feedback on the 4ALLPORTAL DAM: Our in-house colleagues praise the system thanks to the great user experience and seeing their actual workload reduce. Our marketing and graphics department alone saves about 20% time since data can now be found quickly by colleagues thanks to the excellent search function. As a result, the phone rings less and fewer support queries are landing in inboxes. And local dealers and window manufacturers are also just as enthusiastic: Finally, there’s no need to constantly send e-mails back and forth, and they can find their assets in a modern system.

    For us, this is tantamount to a quantum leap in our workflows: Inefficiently handling assets and metadata cost us a great deal of time and caused no end of stress. That is now a thing of the past since combining 4ALLPORTAL and the programming software. When you consider how central the topic of image data management has become for TV broadcasters and that we are now able to cut our working time by around 30% in this regard, we have taken a huge step forward in digitization.

    It might take me fifteen minutes if I’m demonstrating the functions to someone. Otherwise, the only thing that helps is trying things out and asking questions. If we ever have questions, we get straightforward help. They’re very nice and quite patient.

    Rights sharing has also become much more efficient with 4ALLPORTAL. The same is true for agency access. Now we can quickly exchange assets with people outside the system. And we now have much closer collaboration with agencies and external retouchers.”

    I have a feeling that there is a willingness to work together long term on both sides. 4ALLPORTAL is not a provider that tells you to submit a ticket when you have a problem, and then takes three days to handle it because nobody cares.

    We were looking for a product that’s fast, can be connected directly to InDesign and isn’t licensed per user. That’s exactly what we found in 4ALLPORTAL and the DAM module from 4ALLPORTAL. It was also important for us to establish good contact with the provider, so that our product feedback would be taken on board and we’d be treated as more than a number. We found this and more in 4ALLPORTAL.
